I was cleaning bookcases the other day and ran into my copy of Molesworth, (fairly) recently republished by Penguin, all four books in one, with the maniacally funny drawings by Ronald Searle. I googled Molesworth, looking for an online source and found
this.

How to give a taste to the uninitiated? How about this from the table of contents of 'Down with Skool!':

6. HOW TO TORTURE PARENTS
Skool plays displays bunfights and jamborees -- Country Dancing -- Assembly of the Wizzo Space Ship -- Reading Aloud
Parents at a Glance

Warning: Molesworth may permanently damage your spelling. Ground meat in casing is for me forever sossages.
